15:02 EDTGSFed extends capital surcharge for SiFi banks comment period to April 3
The Federal Reserve extended until April 3 the comment period for its proposed rule to implement capital surcharges for the largest, most systemically important U.S. bank holding companies. The Fed extended the comment period to allow interested persons more time to analyze the issues and prepare their comments. Originally, comments were due by March 2. The proposed rule would establish a methodology to identify whether a firm is a global systemically important banking organization and would also establish the size of a firm's risk-based capital surcharge. The proposal is designed to further strengthen the capital positions of these institutions. Large U.S. banks include Bank of America (BAC), Citi (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC).

Blackstone announced the commencement of the investment period for its second energy-focused private equity fund, Blackstone Energy Partners II, with total commitments of $4.5B.

Investors in the fund include a diverse group of U.S. state pension funds, corporate pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies, endowments, foundations and family offices. Like its predecessor fund BEP I, a $2.4B fund that had its final close in September 2012, BEP II will invest in control-oriented equity and equity-linked interests in companies, assets and development projects in the energy and natural resources sector on a global basis. To date, Blackstone’s energy-focused private equity team of professionals has deployed over $8B in this strategy. Blackstone's $16B diversified global private equity fund will continue to invest alongside BEP II in energy transactions on a 50/50 basis.
